Branding with Bags

Joseph Coupal - Monday, March 28, 2011

Consider using custom plastic bags to promote your business. Using a branded bag to promote your business is effective when your business requires customers to use a bag to transport their purchases in. Having your company's logo on the bag, along with its name and tag line goes a long way in increasing the brand recall of your business.

Dry cleaners, grocery stores and deli’s are perfect examples of businesses that can use branded plastic bags from Atlantic Poly. Atlantic Poly’s Clear Dry Cleaning bags are made with hanger holes, sloped shoulders and are available in roll form for easy dispensing.  Dry Cleaning Garment Bags on Rolls are perfect for protecting everything in your wardrobe from dust and dirt, and keeping them wrinkle free! We also supply both reusable and recyclable plastic grocery and shopping bags to many grocery store chains and retail stores across the US.

For branded plastic bags or printed poly bags with your logo or company information, we have the capabilities to imprint poly bags in up to eight colors on two sides. Keep in mind, the print needs to be bold and legible, and the message should be easy to read from a distance. Generally, it is best to print in a bold color with a font that is easy on the eyes. Printed Poly Bags, or branded plastic bags, are useful for many different industries. And, we can print as few as 5,000 bags. We also have complete layout and graphic services available for your convenience.  For getting your name out there on bags, Call Atlantic Poly today.

Roll Off Dumpster Liners Decrease the Potential for Airborne Contamination

Joseph Coupal - Monday, March 21, 2011

Many people will wonder, what is a Roll Off Dumpster Liner? A dumpster liner, in many ways, can be considered to be a massive garbage bag. However, many more attributes are used to specify dumpster liners, such as thicknesses, colors, sizes, chemical make-ups, uses, manufacturing techniques, and packaging.  Even more importantly, there are many different liner requirements/types based on your company's specific application.  Concrete companies, asbestos abatement companies, environmental service corporations, and others rely on Roll Off Dumpster Liners  to contain materials which may be hazardous to public health or our environment. The liner is easily installed and the dumpster is ready to use in no time. in the US (varies by state), environmental laws require the use of dumpster liners. This is necessary so  when a dumpster is being transported there is contaminated liquid dripping.

Many manufacturing facilities produce a daily amount of liquid refuse or semi-solid refuse. These companies  use dumpster liners, or BinSkins for daily operation. BinSkins are mainly black opaque in color and thicknesses typically range from 3 MIL thick to 12 MIL thick. The most popular container sizes are 20, 30 and 40 yard. However, at Atlantic Poly we also make drum liners and liners are also made for larger applications such as railway trailers and truck trailers and you may request a quote for any of these larger sizes. BinSkins are easily installed by one person and are designed to have an overhang on each side, so that the liner may be secured by tying it off to hooks, and taping or tying in knots to avoid having it blow off. Contact Atlantic Poly for your BinSkins order.

Polyethylene Plastic and Disaster Preparation--Is Your Business Prepared?

Joseph Coupal - Monday, March 14, 2011

Our hearts pour out to victims of natural disasters worldwide.  Today, we focus on the immense suffering of the citizens of Japan.  Sadly, the recent events in Japan serve as a stark reminder of the importance of business “disaster preparedness”.  Obviously, for the Japanese business owners who took the wave head-on, no amount of disaster prep would have made a difference.  However, just beyond the wave perimeter, unprepared business owners are “sunk” because they now lack the ability to protect investments from the elements.
Polythylene Bags
Closer to home, this winter's massive snow crushed protective shelters all across America and exposed business plant, property, equipment, and inventory to the elements.  Those owners who manage a proactive disaster preparation program maintain custom-made Poly Shrouds and Bags to blanket irreplaceable business machinery that don’t respond well to water.   

We never get away from the threat of high winds, tornadoes, hurricanes, fire, and water.  Somewhere today, a business owner in America will be victimized by the unexpected and will soon realize the immense value of his ready stock of Atlantic Poly Polyethylene Roll Stock sitting ready in the warehouse.  

No business can afford to allow disaster prep to be an afterthought.  Atlantic Poly stands ready to both prepare you for the unexpected and to help you sleep better at night for so doing.  

Our Polyethylene Bags Have Many Purposes and Are Reusable

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, March 10, 2011
Atlantic Poly can be the source of all your polyethelene needs. We offer a wide variety of products to suit your poly needs. One of the most common are plastic bags.  They are multi-purpose bags made of polyethylene. Plastic bags can be used for varied purposes such as to wrap food, store extra stuff while traveling, and to hoard wet or dirty clothes. They are also ideal as trash bags during journeys. Strength, durability, versatility, and variety are some of the key advantages of Atlantic Poly’s plastic bags.

Polythylene Bags Plastic bags aren’t just used for household purposes they can serve industrial purposes as well. Self-adhesive, resalable drawstring or tote bags are the most commonly used plastic bag. Shrink bags, and durable plastic bags for heavy machinery are all used daily in the industrial areas. Many food items that are available these days come in a wide variety of plastic bags, each suiting a different purpose. Some bags that are used in the vegetable and fruit sections come in rolls that can be easily cut off. These have opening at one end and do not have any sealing attachments.

Plastic bags
that need to be vacuum-free are made of more durable plastic and are closed from all sides except for a small opening through which the air is sucked out to create a vacuum inside before sealing it. Many of the bags Atlantic Poly provides are supplied to grocery chains, and when consumers use those bags they become useful bags for other items they own. Contact us today to learn more about our poly products and how you can get your supply of poly goods.

Atlantic Poly Uses Biodegradable Plastics with Their EnviroTech Recycling Division

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, March 02, 2011

This new technology produces plastic which degrades by a process of OXO-degradation. The technology is based on a very small amount of pro-degradant additive being introduced into the manufacturing process, thereby changing the behavior of the plastic. Degradation begins when the programmed service life is over and the product is no longer required. There is little or no additional cost involved in products made with this technology, which can be made with the same machinery and workforce as conventional plastic products.

The length of time it takes for oxo-biodegradable products to degrade can be ‘programmed’ at the time of manufacture and can be as little as a few months or as much as a few years. They are protected from degradation by special antioxidants until ready for use, and storage-life will be extended if the products are kept in cool, dark conditions.

Unlike PVC, the polymers from which oxo-biodegradable plastics are made do not contain organo-chlorine. Nor do oxo-biodegradable polymers contain PCBs, nor do they emit methane or nitrous oxide even under anaerobic conditions. Only oxo-biodegradable can be economically recycled. Its counter part, hydro-biodegradable is more expensive. Contact us today to learn more about  recycling plastics and be sure to check out our eco-friendly plastic products.
